SOUTH EASTERN DISTRICT. Survevoi's Remarks. ' The cattle-pant for the ferry at Thomson's is f o f&V completed as to be available for crossing fatoek, &c., but several of the details are so unsatisfactorily done that I have been prevented from giving a final certificate.

In consequence of the large number of sheep crossing and expected to cross the Murray at Thomson's, one ferryman is insufficient for working the ferry, and temporary assistance is uot always to be obtained. As many as 23,393 sheep were crossed from the ISth of April to the 3rd of May. With regard to the pant, the Buard ««r nothing to prevent its being used, provided the contractor would afterwards satisfactorily complete the work, and give a guarantee to that effect As to the other remark as to an assistant ferry man being requ...

ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 26 May 1866

ROADS. The Road Bill of last session has rather increased than lessened the difficulties of the great ' Uoads' question. It may have con ceded a good deal, and redressed some long standing grievances, as far as the additions to the schedules of main lines may be conceived to have any practical effect, but it leaves the vexata qucstio of construction and maintenance exactly where it wa.-=, except that whatever j new impetus it may give to ' construction' I will expedite the crisis that awaits us when ' maintenance' will absorb lhe whole amount available for road expenditure. Jn fact our road legislation hitherto has lamentablv failed to accomplish a tithe of the benefits that might have been secured with the means at our disposal : or, in the one instance that may be admitted as an exception ' Executive in action' — if we may be pardoned the apparent contradiction — has destroyed all the good legislation intended.
